in thread Religion in the Monastery.

Although I'm a Christian, I doubt this has any significant impact on my work as a programmer. Religion (or I should rather say 'faith' as I despise the word itself) doesn't affect how I write my Perl code, althought, it does come into play in my dealings with other individuals. My faith has taught me to be tolerant and respectful of other people's beliefs and opinions.

I don't think my/your/someone else's coding would take on a different form simply due to the fact you are a christian, a muslim, or an atheist. For example, I don't draw on verses in the Bible to come up with my variable names. There are no religious undertones in any of my programming work. I feel that had I done otherwise, it would discomfort other developers on my team who might have their own different 'gods' (faiths).

[choroba]: can't you create a meta-key corresponding to the disjunction of the events?
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Heh. This whole thing smells of Strategy Pattern or MVC pattern.
[Corion]: And performance linear to the number of registered one-shots doesn't feel that bad. Maybe I should collect statistics on how many callbacks are outstanding ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Yes, but the longer I thought about efficient hashes mapping the event type back to their callbacks, and how to keep them in sync, the more I thought that all that optimization might just not be worth it, even if it's horribly inelegant
[Lady_Aleena]: My biggest problem with hashes at the moment is one with 2,501 keys.
[choroba]: how many event types are there?
[Corion]: Also I found that I can't conveniently weaken an array slot, which also is inconvenient, as I want my one-shots to disappear if the caller discards them
[Corion]: choroba: Currently two or three that my program handles (WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome), but there might be more that become interesting
[Corion]: But I don't expect more than 100 to be active at the same time, so I'm not really sure if there is a not-too-fancy data structure that is maintained with few lines of code where the performance is better than the linear scan ;)
[Corion]: But I should do a mock-up program so that others can see what I'm talking about ;)
